Twenty-six Year One children completed another four challenges on their Share your Love of Reading grid and earned a biscuit icing Easter treat! The children were all experts having done so much baking for cafe!

Census day was great fun! We all had a fantastic lunch with our teddies and learned a lot about Winnie the Pooh through film and books!

We all had lots of fun showing our family and other carers the games, books and activities we use in school to help us with our phonics.

World book day was lots of fun. We all dressed up as our favourite book characters. Can you see any of your favourites?

We had a fantastic trip to Trinity Church Upminster to look at all the different parts of a church and find out what they are used for.

Year One also visited Station Pantry to research how to run a successful cafe. The children learned how to serve drinks, manage orders, talk to customers and carry a tray. This will be wonderful preparation for their own cafe this term.

We have been busy using our weighing, measuring and baking skills to create delicious treats for our families and carers to try at cafe!

A very busy week for Year One with our parents and cares coming to she Spring Cafe. Everyone had an amazing time and our children were fantastic waiters and waitresses for their adult guests and customers! The cafe made a fantastic profit of over £400 which will be put with our other enterprise money from Christmas to fund an end of year treat. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Year One and Six had fun finding out about British flora by planting bulbs together. Mrs Donovan showed them how to plant the bulb and flatten the soil after to protect the bulb. The project is also part of Year One’s Social Action project of planting in the school and local community. In December they were out again planting new trees and hedge plants to enhance our school grounds.

Year One and Two had a fun workshop about road safety and crossing the road safely. It was great as the children had also received a practical session from Cycle Confidence Havering about riding their bikes and scooters safely!
